Inspired by images on geometric pottery, dating to the 9th and 8th centuries BC, this little bronze group is almost two-dimensional, with a stylised horse and warrior shown as one. The lively composition shows the horse in motion and its rider on the point of casting a spear. He wears a crested helmet, a glimpse of shield can be seen and his cloak is decorated with a meandros or Greek key motif, as seen below.
It is cast for us, in Greece, using the traditional 'lost wax' method. As nothing is mass-produced, there will inevitably be slight variations in patination and colouring. Each piece is, therefore, unique.
